Finally some third party support for Carlson Survey is starting to show up!!
"That CAD Girl", Jennifer DeBona has a series of booklets out now that are quite informative. Also, for $80, there is a NICE book on Carlson Survey 2012, for both the Intellicad and AutoCAD versions, is available from www.cadapult.com
Both sources are worth any money they may charge. Get the book form Cadapult and Jen's booklets and you will be well on your way to better productivity.
